Blog Giveaway

Well, David and I have finally found a house that we love so we are moving! To celebrate, I thought I'd offer a few goodies as a giveaway. After all, you wouldn't want me to have to pack these away in a box would you? The lucky winner will receive two books entitled Art to Wear (comes with a cd of vintage images) and Vintage Paper Crafts, a wooden bench that would be excellent for altering and a purse that you design with artist trading cards. I posted one that I'd created a while back. If you'd like to take a look at it, click here. All you have to do to be entered in my draw is to leave me a comment telling me what home means to you! I'll draw a name next Sunday morning. International friends are welcome to enter. Good luck!

Barbara Hagerty said...

Hoooray for you, Heather!! I'm sure you will be blissfully happy in your new home!!

Home to me is where I can be myself 100% and can express myself freely without risk! A really good house helps, too, because it provides secure shelter, privacy, and a place for the art-stash!!

Have a wonderful life in your new home, and please enter me in the draw!! XOXO

Lorri said...

Thanks for the opportunity Heather :)

Home to me is - The one place I can truly 'be myself and be surrounded by people I love'

Diana Evans said...

Hi Heather...congratulations on finding your dream home....and what fun to have a special blog giveaway!!!!

What does Home mean to me...

Home is a special place that is always warm and cozy and makes me think of all the wonderful memories we have made as a family living here...home to me is waking up and hearing our son call me and watching him play and pick flowers in our gardens and run over to me and say "Mommy ...flower" Home to me is feeling comfort and feeling safe and sound away from any harm....home is definately where the heart is.....


Pascalebrad said...

That is great news Heather, congratulations on finding a new home.
Home is somewhere to relax and forget the worries of life. It is somewhere that should be filled with laughter and love.

Pascale:) Great goodiesx

Audrey said...

Congratulations with your new home! My home is the safest place for me during the time now I'm fighting my burn out!

Anonymous said...

congratulations on the new house, heather.
home is where my heart is, please count me in

Moira said...

Wow delighted you have news to celebrate and those goodies look very inviting. To me home is my sanctuary, on difficult or stressful days it is where I can close the door to keep out weather or worries and snuggle with my DH and dogs and it can be where I throw open the door to let in sunshine and friends and fun. Home is something I miss when I am away and sigh contentedly when I return to. Home is where the things I love are - my DH and 2 manic dogs! Good luck with the move

Anneke said...

Congrats on your house! I've been wondering about that. How exciting and I will be thinking of you and yours.

What home means, to me, is in my heart! If I am at peace, then I'm home. Best always - Marilyn

Chriss Rollins said...

Jonni said...

Congrats on finding a home. Home to me is anywhere I feel safe and can be me.

Deborah March said...

YAAAYYY! Congrats on your new house Heather! Hope it brings you great contentment.

Loved your blog question. "Home," for me has nothing to do with a building. It's definitely about family, wherever we are, together. :)

Happy day!

~*~Patty Szymkowicz said...

How exciting Heather, a new place to dance and sing and enjoy everything! Home means the world to me, difficult to find the exact I asked my husband....he said home is with me....home is where the heart is....just had to share that. He is not always a man of many words :) ooxo

Gabrielle Madsen said...

How lovely of you to offer first love will always be far as moving goes just the mere thought has me at a loss because my studio feels more and more like my house is surrounded by it, not the other way round. 18 years of creating in the same place tends to generate an eccentric accumulation.

Judy said...

Congratulations on finding your new home, Heather! Home to me is where I can find peace, my little Bichon, Monty and where I can sing and no-one can hear (except Monty) and where I can create all my 'masterpieces'!
Thank you for this opportunity, Heather

Jaqi said...

Good Luck on moving to your new home.

Home to me is a place that opens its arms when the children want to come home, and closes the door when you need to be alone, and embraces all of you when you are together in either moments of joy or sadness.

Thank you Jaqi

Glad to hear you have found a new house Heather and with all of your beautiful creations you are sure to make it into a beautiful home as soon as you move... good luck with the move I hope it goes smoothly.
The blog candy is wonderful thanks for the chance to win it :D
"Home" to me is my sanctuary, a place where I can be safe from everything, indulge in my creative dreams and share with the laughter of my loved ones... no other place makes me feel so happy and content and I hope your new home is as joyful for you too.
Chris xx

Home means comfort and peace with safety and love with silliness and joy.

Kersten said...

What a generous gift, Heather! Congratulations on your pending move - may your new place have a niche for you and all your lovely stamping.

Home is where you can kick off your clogs, drink as much tea as you want, and sing out loud to crazy old music. It's where you're comfortable in your own skin. It's where friends and family know they can find you. That's home. :)

Kelly said...

Congrats on finding a new home!

Home is a place where one can relax, be oneself, be safe and warm. Privacy is important too.

congrats on finding a new home!!! That's exciting, I've moved alot and although the packing and unpacking doesn't appeal to me, the prospect of new beginnings and a new 'palette' to decorate make your own is rejuvenating in so many ways.

I'd love to be considered for your drawing!

Linda said...

A home is for the things that you love; whether they are pets, partners, children or treasures. (Or all of those!)

I hope you'll be really happy in your new home Heather.

Marigold said...

There are very few places that can calm, comfort, and inspire a free spirit. Home is one of them.

Congratulations on the move. Sometimes it can be difficult to be uprooted, but I find that more often than not, the pay-off is more than worth the discomfort. Good luck!


Nicole said...

congrats on the house!!

Home is not a house rather it is a place where your family is, it can be a large area where u feel comfortable and loved

Mam said...

I am so happy for you, Heather. I have been a gypsy nearly all my life. I've lived in Alaska most of the time, where my husband works as a boat captain. We moved to many different areas there, to be near where he was, but then he'd get called away. We finally settled in Homer and had a 5 acre place with a barn, nice shop and garage. Then we found we needed to come to Ohio. We've been here for 3 years now and still have not settled permanently. So I'm looking for a home, too.
Because of my lifestyle, I've been able to *feel* at home almost anywhere, but I want my own home to settle down in now.
It's time.
I'd love to be in your drawing. Thanks, Heather.
